Share your Medicare claims (Medicare's Blue Button)

You can download your Medicare claims data to your computer or device to print it or share it with others. You can also easily share your data with doctors, pharmacies, caregivers, or others you choose by linking to web applications (apps). This optional service, called Blue Button, is secure, reliable, and easy to use.

By linking your data to apps authorized by Medicare, you can:

  • Access and share all your Part A (Hospital Insurance), Part B (Medical Insurance), and Part D (Medicare drug plan) claims with doctors and others you choose.
  • Manage your health with other computer-based services the apps offer.
  • Control your health information.
If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan, your data will only include claims for your drugs. You can check with your plan to find out if it offers apps that let you access and share your health data.

  2. Select "Download my claims & personal data" from the drop-down menu under your name.

If you download or share your records, keep the file safe by treating it like banking or other private information you don't want everyone to see:

  • Keep your username and password private — don't share it.
  • Keep paper copies in a safe and secure place.
  • Carefully review any apps or other services they offer before importing your data.
